My husband has macular degeneration and it got to the point where he could not see enough to read even with a magnifying glass. We found out about getting these tapes when we went to buy a CCTV. They mentioned that we could get all kinds of helpful information from this organization and he gave us their number. We called and the person we talked to was very understanding of our siituation. She told us that everything was free and sent us several cassettes. They showed my husband all kids of tricks and techniques to do things that he was having trouble doing due to his vision loss. One of the tapes we got told him how to use the stove by putting marks on the dials and other safety tips. He can now fix soup and warm things up by himself. My husband is an Army Veteran and has always had alot of trouble doing things on his own. The information we got from the EARS program has helped him to get back to doing some things he likes despite his bad eye condition.

I have been living alone since my wife died 11 years ago. When I found out that I was loosing my vision due to macular degeneration I was so worried! I thought I was going to have to go live with one of my children. A friend of mine who goes to the VA told me he heard about a program that gives tapes that will help me to continue to live on my own. He gave the the phone number for the EARS program. I called and talked with one of the staff who were very encouraging. They then sent me cassettes that taught me how to house clean and organize my things. It was great! They then sent me some others that told me how to use proper lighting and ways to keep my pills in order. I can now do many things that I thought I would never be able to do with the vision loss. I am still living alone and am doing very well. This is a wonderful service they provide and most of all, It is free of charge.

EARS for EYES provides low cost, high efficiency vision rehabilitation services for veterans (and others) who have lost or are losing their vision. The service is free to the client. The two founders are highly motivated individuals with a tremendous sense of purpose. The service they provide enables people from all over the U.S. to access vision rehab services, (daily living skills instruction) enabling the individual to remain living independently despite vision loss.

working with the founders and watching them start up the service -- from the beginning stages of research thru to development/production/distribution of the final product. They deliver quality vision rehab services in a very cost efficient, timely manner.

EARS is a top notch, very efficiently run organization. The staff really is very caring and concerned for all they assist. There tapes are very professionally done and do the job they were created for. Their website is very easy to use and has a database of thousands of resources for their clients. I hope they stay around for many years to come. Its not easy to do what they are doing, it requires lots of knowledge and continuing education. EARS is an incredible feat. I am sure there are many people who feel the same way.
